    Not sure I understand what signng him does, other than make the roster older and less capable defensively. At least Choo or Ellsbury are good to great defenders, and get on base a lot......Kubel is the kind of guy a team signs when they are DHing Lew Ford, and are close to a championship, not the kind of guy a team that has fly ball pitchers that probably won't sniff the playoffs should sign.

Instead, I think we should keep playing Dozier until either he shows he isn't as good as last year, or until Rosario shows he's ready. If the latter is the case, you can trade one of them for an arm. The situation will work itself out.
    I love Rosario in LF. Dozier would be a disaster at SS. Stick with Florimon until Santana or Polanco beats him out.
    LF Rosario
    CF Buxton
    RF Hicks or Kepler
    DH Arcia

    As for Rosario, why are people suddenly asking him to go back to the corner OF? The Twins would be far better served to move Dozier back to SS before they move Rosario to the OF and add to an already crowded situation.
    I've stuck by parmelee for a long time but im finally giving up on him.

    If TD ever starts a Snappy Quote of the Day feature, I'm nominating this one.

    No it does not make sense to sign Kubel.

    It also does not make sense to break up our middle infield. The Twins need to give Dozier and Florimon every opportunity to grow upon and improve what they had last year. I fully expect the middle infield to be solid in 2014 and it would be nice if both players improved their hitting from last year.
